Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Grants Program

The Chesapeake Bay Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Grants Program awards grants of $200,000 to $1 million to support innovative, sustainable and cost-effective approaches that dramatically reduce nutrient and sediment pollution to the Chesapeake Bay and its local waterways.

Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Grants are awarded on a competitive basis to projects that target and reflect the region’s diverse landscapes and sources of pollution that exist throughout the Bay watershed.

Priorities for funding include:

  • Field-scale demonstrations of innovative technologies, conservation practices and best management practices (BMPs) that have the potential to significantly reduce excess nutrient loads.
  • Demonstrations of the most effective and efficient strategies for implementing nutrient pollution reductions in targeted small watersheds.
  • Water quality trading demonstrations and other market-based strategies to reduce nutrient pollution.
  • Demonstrations of strategies that overcome barriers to adoption of the most effective and efficient BMPs and conservation practices.

The Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Grants Program is administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Chesapeake Bay Program.
